Could scientists have found a particle heavier than the famous Higgs boson? That appears to be the case. Using the CMS and ATLAS detectors at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) outside Geneva, Switzerland, scientists discovered an excess of photon pairs carrying around 750 gigaelectronvolts of energy, according to Nature. This could indicate a particle new to nature that would be about four times more massive than the heaviest particle ever discovered – the top quark – and six times heavier than the Higgs. Read more..
